    Default Any way to preserve icon arrangement
    I am an admitted app hoarder. I have several hundred apps on my phone and I was wondering if there is a way to preserve icon arrangement while using FolderEnhancer, Iconoclasm and Infinidock? When I restore my phone, it is a tedious effort to resort my icons back into the folders that they were originally in. It would be nice to be able to click a button to restore my previous app layout with folders.

    Thanks.

    I use "SpringBack"
    Theres a backup & restore option which works great for me.
    Look for SpringBack for iOS 4 in Cydia
    Hope this helps...

    Thanks. Your suggestion also led me to find a program called "Backboard". I was wondering if you or anyone else knows if either Springback or Backboard works with Folder Enhancer, Infinidock, and Iconoclasm? I have a 5x5 grid with multiple folders housing a large app library. I may have to perform one of those "Reset all settings" soon (request from Navigon to isolate a problem with my maps) and I was wondering which program would be best for restoring my springboard and folder settings. Would I lose the settings from either of these programs if I did the reset? I understand that Backboard is for theme switching, but could it be used for the purpose mentioned above? Can it be used without Winterboard since my purpose isn't for theme switching?

    Thanks again.

    Has anyone else tried Springback or Backboard with these programs?

    Worst case scenario, you could always grab MultiIconMover and do your folders in a flash.

    Also, FolderEnhancer has preserved my folders for me, even after a DFU restore.

    Really? I didn't know that FolderEnhancer preserves folder and application location. I have MultiIconMover and Infinidock. Both make icon placement much easier. But I'm an app hoarder and even with these tools, resetting folder and icon placement is very painful.
